Year 14 Travel and Tourism students enjoyed a visit from Alison Hamilton, Operations Manager at Oasis Travel in Lisburn. Students are currently studying a module on Customer Service and Alison talked to them about what good customer service is and how Oasis excels in this area. Pupils gained a thorough insight into a very successful business and took away lots of ideas with  which to inform their assignments.

In order to gain an insight into the Travel and Tourism industry we receive talks from visiting speakers, onsite visits to hotels and tourist destinations.
